This ChromeOS-powered gaming laptop is a powerful option that uses server-based cloud computing to help you enjoy your favorite titles. It comes packing a 12-core Intel Core i5-1240P processor that uses Intel’s Iris Xe Graphics as well as 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD to help do the heavy lifting.
Its 16-inch IPS panel offers quite the high resolution for a Chromebook at 2,560 x 1,600 and a 120Hz refresh rate that beats the competition. It also has an RGB keyboard with a sturdy, slick aluminum chassis that feels as premium as it looks.
It’s important to note that this Chromebook lacks a touchscreen, and in case it wasn’t clear, it’s meant mostly for cloud gaming. That means you’ll need internet access to get your game on. But if all that fits the bill for you, this is an excellent price for the system. It could be your ticket to getting more gaming in without breaking the bank.
